Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop!

It's giveaway time again!  Thanks to Kathy at I am a Reader not a Writer, for getting us all in the holiday spirit!

This is a quick giveaway -- just a brief 48 hours of fun -- and it leaves you with enough time to finish up any leftover holiday shopping!  Giveaway will close at 11:59pm CST on Wednesday, December 22nd and is good for US/Canada participants.

For my holiday offering, I have one hardback copy of:

An Irish Country Christmas by Patrick Taylor

Summary from Publishers Weekly:
Taylor's delightful holiday update to the Irish Country series returns to Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal O'Reilly and junior partner Barry Laverty are still practicing their humorous brand of country medicine. As Christmas draws closer, the two men contend with a variety of comical village ailments and the usual array of Ballybucklebo characters, as well as romantic troubles. O'Reilly is trying to decide if he will allow himself to love again with the vivacious Kitty O'Halloran, and Laverty is distraught because his girlfriend can't seem to make it home for the holidays. Then a new doctor comes to town and causes a ruckus by poaching their patients and prescribing ludicrous cures. This has all the charm of Taylor's previous books and adds Christmas warmth without sacrificing credibility.

  10. How funny that you ask if we've been to Ireland since I just went for the first time and it was on accident! 2 days in Limerick while I waited for my diverted flight to go to London!

  11. Unfortunately, no but it would be one of the first countries on my list!

  12. No, I have never been to Ireland. I might have gotten to go next year, but we now have to remodel the kitchen. So no trip to England and the Isles, as I/we were planning. Makes me wonder if it will happen at all now...
